Cristina Iaia worked for 14 years at La Perla before stepping out on her own. Just six years ago, lingerie was dominated by lots of straps and one-upmanship with the small thong or string. Brands like
Lola Luna/Luxxa, I.D. Sarrieri, and Cristina Iaia led the way. Each added a lot of flair to their collections. Iaia was very fond of the layered string, multiple waist bands, and asymmetric lines.
Currently, all of the stockists carrying Cristina Iaia have the lines on deep discount. I can’t find anything newer than 2006 and can’t find any recent news from the designer.
